Chart Notes:

  • Olivia Rodrigo claims her first #1 song on my personal chart with “Driver’s License”, rising from 3-1. It’s already topped the Billboard Hot 100 survey and looks to be one of the early favorites for the best-performing single of the year. Dua Lipa blasts from 34-22 with this week’s Biggest Mover in the countdown, “We’re Good”. Newcomer Anson Seabra has the Highest Debut at #39 with “Walked Through Hell”, as a new song from Conan Gray sneaks in at #40. “Overdrive” is his third top 40 entry to date.
